Cruise Terminal Upgrades, Additions in Galveston Will Draw Tourism, Money to Region
The Port of Galveston is investing an estimated $33 million in cruise-related infrastructure projects as the demand continues to grow.
“You’ve got to spend money to make money,” Rodger Rees, Galveston Wharves Port Director and CEO, wrote in a recent newsletter.
Rees estimates 330 sailings this year, which would be a new record in the port’s 22-year history as a cruise homeport. The port, the fourth busiest in the nation and only home port in Texas, is expected to exceed 1 million cruise passengers in 2023, breaking the 2019 record.
